In addition to the consistency which exists in the Safety Practices' common approach to data collection, some overlap exists among the types of data examined for each Practice, with varying levels of detail. Although more than one Practice may recommend the examination of a specific sprinkler system, for example, one Practice may address simple verification that the installed system is maintained and functional; and another may evaluate more detailed information, such as the system design criteria, reliability of system components, spacing of individual sprinkler heads, and the measures present to verify that there is no water flow blockage within the piping.

Under this programme, the Agency has conducted fire safety missions to nuclear power plants, upon the request of some Member States. To date, six missions had been carried out. These plants were of different design and in different stages of construction or operation. The scope of the missions were determined by the needs of the nuclear power plants and were established in advance. Each mission was carried out by a team (hereafter in this paper called the Team) consisting of external experts on assignment to the IAEA and usually includes an IAEA staff member.
